Furniture Making

Making furniture is an art in itself! When you reproduce an antique style piece of furniture or put a modern twist on a trusted favorite style you get a sense of accomplishment from your efforts.  Not to mention a buck in the bank if you sell your items too! Let Woodcraft be your trusted source for learning new skills like dovetail joints or the latest and greatest way to finish your masterpiece. 

There is also an art in repairing furniture… whether you inherited grandma’s pie safe or grandpa’s valet chair, chances are it will need a little TLC!  Today, repairing a piece of furniture has a trendy new name… it’s called upcycling! Whatever you call it, Woodcraft has the specialty products, tips and tricks and expertise to bring your piece back to life.
